“Odis Weff,” portrayed by Jack Huston, is a WWII veteran and detective with the Kansas City Police Department. Odis suffers from OCD, but in 1950, he’s just a peculiar fellow who pounds nerve tonic to quiet his anxieties. Odis does not do well in high-stress situations, which can make his job very difficult at times.
